What’s up? Docs

You’re in for a mostly gripping marathon of global challenges with this year’s Oscar nominees for documentary shorts.


Features

Rod Lott
Some suggestions before 7:30 p.m. Thursday, when the Oklahoma City Museum of Art screens this year’s five Oscar-nominated documentary short films, each roughly 40 minutes in length. Visit the restroom first. Get comfy. Have some Kleenex handy. And perhaps a handful of St. John’s wort.

Freedom fighter


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
In response to Jason Reese’s Feb. 9 Commentary (“Point: Legislate morality, Gazette), I would like to say that it’s one thing for Reese to have the courage of his personal convictions, but it’s quite another thing to urge passage of legislation that would use the police power of the state to impose his convictions on others.

Food and Drink Features

Carol Smaglinski

A bone to pick with Sen. Josh Brecheen


Letters to the Editor

Amy Briceno
One needn’t be the sharpest tooth in the hound to imagine why you, Sen. Josh Brecheen, would advocate repeal of SB 1712. I suspect one only need follow the money trail. I’d be willing to bet you have a friend or two with “puppy mill-itis.”
